Should Be Evaluated: This should be evaluated initially by your Primary Care Provider to obtain an appropriate medical history and baseline labratory tests. There are many, many conditions which could account for your symptomatology and it is not necessarily representative of a serious medical condition such as ALS. Make sure your diet is appropriate. Your PCP can refer you to an appropriate specialist if necessary.
